posted on by Andrew Osmond
Viewster has announced that it will be streaming the second TV season of the tennis anime Baby Steps to the UK and Ireland. This is in addition to the previous UK/Ireland simulcast announcements by the Viewster site: Seraph of the End, The Heroic Legend of Arslan and Plastic Memories.
The Baby Steps television anime adapts Hikaru Katsuki's manga of the same name, which revolves around Eiichirō "Ei-chan" Maruo, a punctual and earnest boy who has strived for straight As since elementary school. The 15-year-old high school boy stops by a tennis school to deal with his lack of exercise. There, he meets Natsu Takasaki, a beautiful, earnest girl who only has passion for tennis. The second season's story picks up at a Florida academy where the rival players of the world vie for #1.
The second season will run for 25 episodes. Just as in the first season, the new season will continue using Mao Abe's song "Believe in Yourself" as the opening theme song.
The first anime series premiered last April. Pierrot (Naruto, Kingdom) animated the first television series with a total of 25 episodes. Katsuki himself collaborated on the creation of episodes with original stories not told in the manga. Kenji Saito (Dennō Coil, Bakuman., Bottom-Biting Bug) produced the anime for NHK.
